Get to know the lovely Chantelle Stanton as she chats to us about her dream wedding to her husband Tanner, where she got the inspiration for her big day and her best advice for brides-to-be.
I'm a Melbourne girl.
WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR WEDDING INSPIRATION FROM?
Instagram, Pinterest, travelling.
WHAT WAS YOUR WEDDING THEME?
I had always loved the romantic European feel for a wedding and working with our beautiful venue we highlighted the Tuscan Villa details and that created our theme.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR DRESSES!
I had two beautiful custom gowns.
My first one was by Mariana Hardwick which I created the 'Chantelle' Gown, a fitted bodice and big skirt with open split and train! Simple and classic with pearl detailing in the buttons and all through my veil to match.
My second dress was a custom version of the 'Saint' gown from Jane Hill Bridal which I loved and wore as a party dress. Filled with beading detail, long sheer sleeves and a fitted dress I loved that they were both so different and worked perfectly for the ceremony and then night time.
WHO DID YOUR HAIR & MAKEUP?
I had the incredible Isabella Quinn Makeup artist and Hair by Brittany! Working in my industry it was amazing to have connections and relationships with these girls already and made it so much easier to know who I would have on my big day to help me get ready.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE PART ABOUT PLANNING A WEDDING?
I loved creating our day! Working with our incredible suppliers, on the day seeing it all come together was just amazing after 14 months of organising.
YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT ON THE DAY?
There was so many, but some of my favourite moments would be walking down the aisle and seeing Tanner standing at the other end, and also entering our reception and having a big party with all of our favourite people! It was such a special night.
ADVICE FOR SOMEONE PLANNING A WEDDING IN 2021?
Make it YOU! It's all about you guys and celebrating you. The little details mean the most and just enjoy the process as it goes so fast and you want to remember it as such an amazing time in your life. Also brides, book Brides Who Brunch for the morning of... you won't regret it!
BEST HONEYMOON ADVICE?
Book in an activity or something that you wouldn't normally do while on a holiday to make it feel extra special! We booked a helicopter to Whitehaven Beach and it was honestly one of my favourite things we have done. Highly recommend!
YOUR FAVOURITE CELEBRITY WEDDING?
Anna and Tim Robards and Gabrielle Caunesil's weddings were both amazing.
BEST WEDDING INSPO ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW?
Bridal Journey, Ivory Tribe, Weddings of Desire, Lost in Love Photography, Moon and Back Co some of my favs!
FAVOURTIE NAKEDVICE PIECE?
I recently got The Silvie Navy Croc Embossed Baguette which I love! Blue is a favourite colour of mine.
I also love The Cyrus Heel in White which is actually the shoe I wore to my hens party and my bridesmaids wore the day of my wedding.
